Hey Y'all, I'm Lara

Carolina girl, former teacher of littles, military spouse, and momma to two little boys and our cats. My little family is currently calling the beautiful PNW (Washington state) home, though we've also lived and loved in Florida, Tennessee, and Hawaii throughout my husband's Navy career!

Janie & Max came about when I was looking for a new hobby, and I was burnt out on sewing (masks). Just around the time I was searching, Emylee Williams (@emyleesays on ig) hosted a free clay earrings workshop virtually. I was hooked!

I quickly fell in love with the process of working with clay - conditioning and shaping it, mixing different colors to make a new one, experimenting with different techniques, having a vision of a new design and making it come to life! I just love it all.

I named my little corner of the clay-making world after my grandmas - Janie & Maxine - Max for short. They were both great influences and creative inspirations in my life, and I aim to make them and my momma proud every day.

I hope to teach, inspire, and build community with acceptance, love, and kindness, always.
What better way to honor them and their memory than to spend time creating pretty things for myself and for others? That's why I do this - to be able to carry on my grandmothers' memory doing something I know they would have enjoyed doing right alongside me.

xoxo
Lara
